TSA agents saw the device when a passenger’s bag was going through the CTX machine when it triggered an alarm.

Our source recently spoke with a contact at the TSA who told him there were three devices, one a smaller “trigger” device and two larger pipe bombs” with enough explosives to do some serious damage” as the TSA agent described it.

Authorities haven’t determined yet if the devices were actually rigged to explode or if it was just bomb making components being carried, our source stated “either way it’s some scary stuff”.

The man they arrested he described as “a nut job” – he didn’t fit a terrorist’s profile. The events are still the subject of intense security investigations at this time.

The terminal has been now been  re-opened and staff are working to get the morning flights out and clear the back-log of passengers.

The airport is under high security at this time, police with automatic weapons are patrolling the terminals, our source suggests that other airports may be affected because of the events at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport this morning.
